May 20—(UP)— The supreme court decided today to entertain an attack on validity of the Bankhead cotton control act. It was challenged In a suit by Lee Moor, a client, Texas, cotton I grower, against the Texas and New Orleans Railroad company. Moor, in his plea to the high coiu’t, said that he was obliged to grow at least 2,000 bales of cotton during the 1934-35 crop year. Of thLs amount he could sell only 855 bales tax free under the law’ which Imposed a six cent per pound tax on all cotton sold in excess of a farmer’s allotments. Moor offered hl.s excess cotton to the railroad at El Paso. It refused to accept it for shipment to Liver-! pool, Eng., without payment of the I ginning tax. On the Moor offering, this would have amounted to $49,-i 335. ! The grower then sued to compel the company to aocept the shipment. He cited that he could sell ------the cotton in Liverpool to net him Dpcl?irG‘s Two while he could not get «aminibuaiur ueoidreb i wu country. The oWru t .'X>urt held that it could not entertain the .suit because , pirst the law provides that In tax cases, the tax must be paid and suit filed for a refund. The court of appeals ruled that Moor should have sued the railroad for failure to accept the cotton. frlilfion,» To Lose Jobs If Law Expires 1 of Ten Narcotics Cases Is Called In Lubbock Court Issue To Be Immediately Resurrected: Rider Will Let Roosevelt Decide How to Pay (Uopvright. 1935.
